After being off the Glycopyrrolate medication for 1 year and 3 months, I started up again this past weekend.
I went off the medication because I was feeling immune to it, but my doctor and I thought we could try it again and see what happens.
This medication worked miraculously the last time I was on it (2007-2011). I was really hoping I would receive the same results.
So far, I have!
The medication worked almost immediately. My hands and feet are dry.
The one side effect I am struggling with is having a dry throat. My doctor says this may go away with continued use.
It is a strange sensation, being on this medication. My hands will still get hot and really feel like they are sweating, but they are not.
Personally, I worry a little because I want to have that visual of sweaty hands to explain to people what HH is. As someone who wants to help the HH community, I feel like I should continue struggling and suffering with it. I want it present in my everyday life.
This might sound crazy to you. To purposefully want to struggle with HH. I guess I just never want to forget about it. I never want to dismiss its impact on my life and others.
We will see how this medication goes. So far, I’m dry. So far, I’m still passionate about helping the HH community.
I recommend this medication to anyone suffering with HH.
Thanks for reading!
